They asserted equal allegiance and loyalty to the new leader Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Mansoor as they had supported and obeyed the late Amir-ul-Momineen.
Later, a religious scholar told the audience that he will swear allegiance to the new deputy head of the Islamic Emirate and they will have to raise their hands for taking an oath of allegiance to the new leadership of the Islamic Emirate. He was followed with great fervor and enthusiasm. After that, members of the leading council of the Islamic Emirate and newly appointed deputy head of the Islamic Emirate, Moulavi Haibatullah Akhunzada spoke in details respectively. They informed the people about the passing away of His Excellency the late Amir-ul-Momineen. They elaborated the selection and allegiance pledging procedure of discerned and influential people for the appointment of new leadership. They stressed upon the unity and integrity of the Islamic Emirate and assured about the future of the Islamic Emirate. Eventually, the leadership, dignitaries, Mujahidin and devoted countrymen were called upon to remain vigilant for demolishing all the malicious conspiracies of the devious enemy.
In this meeting, Moulavi Abdul Kabeer, member of the leading council of the Islamic Emirate, accentuated in his elaborative speech to follow the footsteps and struggle of the late Amir-ul-Momineen (may his soul rest in peace) and vowed that the succeeding leaders and authorities of the Islamic Emirate will never agree to accept any illegitimate deal neither with foreign invaders nor with their internal stooges, until our homeland is completely liberated. We will maintain our sacred Jihadi struggle unless the circumstances are paved for the implementation of a pure Islamic system of life.
Moulavi Abdul Kabeer added:
‘When the Jihadi struggle of Muslim Afghan masses was on the verge of success, the western and other infidel forces tried to deviated them from the path of Jihad. Our aspirations of establishing an Islamic government and system of life in the wake of a prolonged sacred Jihad were thwarted by chaos, looting, plunder and instigating the internal fighting among unrestrained warlords in nearly all parts of the country. Actually, they wanted to show the world that this will be the eventual outcome of Jihad. But it was His Excellency, the late Amir-ul-Momineen, who undertook to revive and secure the lofty but nearly abolished aspirations of the sacred Jihad, all by himself, in the most horrendous circumstances, while enjoying the support and company of a few devoted comrades, but with strong determination, lofty courage and deep trust in the One and the Almighty Allah. He restored and implemented a pure Islamic system and demolished sequentially the devious conspiracies of the western and other infidel forces against Jihad and Islam.
We are the followers of a highly courageous Amir-ul-Momineen and will definitely chase his footsteps for the implementation of Islamic system and the abolition of all malicious conspiracies of the infidel powers by sustaining the sacred path of Jihad by shedding our blood and even sacrificing our lives. Now we are confident that no one can thwart the Islamic Emirate by having a discerning and vigilant leadership, supported by highly qualified scholars and religious figures and defended by Mujahidin with tremendously high morale and spirit of enthusiasm and sacrifice.
On my behalf, I assure all our noble countrymen, courageous Mujahidin of the Islamic Emirate and all the revered and sympathetic Muslim masses of the world that we will follow the policies of our late Amir-ul-Momineen (may his soul rest in peace); Jihad will be sustained till the implementation of Islamic system of life. We will never deal with any infidel or conspirator power of the world against Islamic system of life. We will never subjugate to anyone or accept their slavery. We will trust in and rely upon One and the Almighty Allah for sustaining the sacred path of Jihad. We will pray and ask for his support and benevolence. We expect our sincere and devoted countrymen for extending even greater support to our mission and Mujahidin. It is worth-mentioning that biased world media is intentionally spreading negative propaganda for specific malicious objectives against the Islamic Emirate especially in the ongoing critical circumstances. They do not publish our stance and viewpoint; therefore, our sincere masses can get the reliable information only from our own websites, spokesmen of the Islamic Emirate and other print or electronic media outlets. They are the only authentic and trustworthy sources for understanding our stance and policy.
After that, the afternoon prayer was offered in congregation. Then, an oath of allegiance was taken to the deputy head of the Islamic Emirate in a proper and particular manner by all participants of this gathering.
Subsequently, the newly sworn in deputy head of the Islamic Emirate, Moulavi Haibatullah Akhunzada elaborated the life and achievements of His Excellency the late Amir-ul-Momineen and pledged that the succeeding leadership of the Islamic Emirate will definitely pursue his path. He urged the responsible people of the Islamic Emirate to remain united for the promotion of Jihadi ideals and sought even greater support and sacrifice of ordinary people for this purpose.
In his speech, Moulvi Haibatullah Akhunzada said, ‘His Excellency, the late Amir-ul-Momineen (may his soul rest in peace) has left a well-built mosque for us; we have a well-organized structure of the Islamic Emirate and face no difficulty anywhere; our only responsibility is to safeguard this well-built home (i.e. the Islamic Emirate) by preserving our unity and we should never refrain from any service or sacrifice in achieving this goal.’
Eventually the meeting was closed with the prayers of religious scholars and revered saints.
